“He (Premadasa) simply thinks he is going to win the presidential election. He does not realise the enormous damage he is causing. There are key members who are not happy but are patient. His late father, President Ranasinghe Premadasa, was more understanding and did not talk from a high pedestal. He mingled with all,” Champika  pointed out.

The event was held at the Lakshman Kadirgamar Centre.  and  Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga and Ferial Ashraff were in the audience.


The SJB Party General Secretary  Ranjith Madumma Bandara was also  in the audience and Sajith Premadasa has so far not commented on the accusations.

Key proposals of the common minimum programme include auctioning luxury vehicles of officials, establishing a commission for economic crimes, and confiscating hidden wealth.
